Moline - Three pit bulls have been put down after they killed two Chinese crested dogs that were let out into their own yard. The pit bulls escaped through a gate tied with a bungee cord, entered the neighbors yard and attacked two small dogs. Their 87 year old owner was injured when he tried to protect his dogs from attack.
The pit bull owner voluntarily gave up the pit bulls allowing animal control to put them down.
Original reports indicate “investigators” can’t figure out why the pit bulls attacked and killed dogs unprovoked and off property.
